Rhino factory fuel pumps keep going out

I am on my second fuel pump in 5 months. All fuel lines/filters and vent lines are clean. Anyone else have a problem with their rhino eating fuel pumps?

Thanks

I did. Went to the Black Rhino Electric fuel pump set up. Best thing I ever did. Turn the key, give it a couple of seconds to build fuel pressure, and it starts first time, every time, without killing the battery while it tries to "prime" the pump.

How did you go about getting it to come on with the key? Would it hold up in a muddy and wet environment? Thanks for your input.

I bough these 2 pieces from Black Rhino. I tapped a keyed live off the ignition switch.

Sorry, tried to post a link for you, but, wouldn't let me, not enough posts yet.

As far as wet environements, I use mine for hunting up in Maine, Its always wet, spend more time winching than i do hunting. It hasen't been a problem yet. I solder and heat shrink all my connections, np.

I never had much luck over time with heat-shrink wire connectors. I went back to the cheap butt connectors and fill them with RTV Sealant first, put the twisted wire ends in, and clamp. I use that method on over-the-road trucks running in salt all winter and it seems to be much better.

Lol! I never had any luck with butt connectors, even with the correct crimping pliers. Seems like I was constantly chasing Electrical Gremlins on my boat, it too, was a "Salty" environment. Seem like the salt air would always work it's way into the crimp and corrode the wires, no matter how much sealing I did.

I found that the lead in the solder would protect the connection from corroding and the heat shrink would offer back up protection.
